There are many examples of large dishes among Vietnamese blue-and-white ware extant in Japan. The arrangement of this design, with two sharp-beaked birds facing each other, is reminiscent of Chinese phoenix designs, but the overall impression is quite different. These birds have a wild power and intensity, along with an exhilarating sense of speed. The lines of the baoxiang-hua floral scroll are also different from Chinese blue-and-white decoration. The clay body has a slight grayish tint. The outstanding decoration of this dish has made it a world-famous masterpiece.

Vietnamese blue-and-white ware was influenced by Chinese blue-and-white ware; however, many points regarding its origins remain unclear. The form and design of this jar can be seen in similar pieces from China's Yuan dynasty, indicating that this is a relatively early example of Vietnamese blue-and-white ware, probably from around the 15th century. There are heath-rose shaped frames on four places on the body, in which we see carefully painted designs of pine, bamboo, plum, and a flowering plant. The character of the clay body and base of the bottle are different from Chinese blue-and-white ware. There are similar bottles in existence, but this is an outstanding example.

Bức ảnh được chụp ở núi Chứa Chan nơi có di tích lịch sử văn hóa Chùa Gia Lào, từ chân núi lên đến nơi tham quan (chùa Gia Lào) có độ dài và dốc đến hơn 2.000 mét. Khách tham quan đi bộ lên núi đã mệt lã rồi, huống chi những anh “Cửu vạn” phải mang nặng như thế này, những gáng hàng nặng oằn lưng, phải gắng hết sức, khó khăn lắm mới có thể đi hết đoạn dốc.

La photo est prise sur la montagne Chứa Chan où se trouve le temple historique Gia Lào à plus de 2000 m. Les fidèles peinent déjà à monter toutes les marches tandis que Monsieur “Cửu vạn”,chargé de son régime de bananes, le fait plusieurs fois par jour, le dos toujours droit.
